Very quiet and peaceful. A little pricey for dry camping, but we were allowed to put water in our RV. Enjoyed watching the deer! I expected to be in a casino parking lot! What a nice surprise to be tucked away in a little wooded area.

If you're tenting, stay away. The camp site wasn't mowed for months it seemed, so the grass was tall and full of sharp weeds. You needed shoes to walk around, and you could feel the thorns through the tent fabric. Would not go back unless they seriously cleaned up.

If you're in an RV, it's probably good.

The camp was clean, quiet and perfect for our trip to Glacier. We checked in late and left very early and Danette was incredibly accommodating. She was quick to answer our questions.

Host was super friendly, however, the site was full of sharp weeds and brush that would have easily poked a hole through the bottom of our tent. Could not stay there without a THICK tarp and even then would have needed a thicker than normal sleeping pad.

Site was great. Not super remote. Land was very flat. We were able to camp out of two truck tents + one traditional tent. There was significant road noise, which we expected based on other reviews, so that was no problem.

Very close to Flathead Lake, and neighboring the bar was a fun way to spend the night with friends. We booked this site to meet up with friends and easily set up after dark. Because it was so easy to find and well kept, it lived up to that plan with ease.

Place was okay....
Def. Overpriced for the experience/site. Host was okay. Not warm or cold. Again considering the price point would not return. But had a safe place to sleep for the night.

Excellent space with lots of clearance for a big rigs and rooftop tents. The campsite is well maintained and provides a picnic table and individual fire pit. Each site has ample spacing so you can really enjoy privacy and quiet. The drive to the site from W.Glacier has scenic farmland against a gorgeous mountain backdrop. I had great cell internet service (T-Mobile) at site. Simple primitive site and exactly what you need after a long day of exploring. If you're like us and you want to experince the local spots the Silver Bullet bar is just a stone throw away and has great food and drinks! You can also enjoy their juke box, slot machines, pool table, massage chairs, and a great atmosphere. Danette was an excellent host and I recommend her place!
